IBM's New Server Manufacturing Center is Very Green

IBM announced the opening of a new $30 million manufacturing facility at its Poughkeepsie site to produce the next generation of System z mainframes and high-end Power Systems servers. The facility, built inside an existing structure, will produce IBM's next line of System z mainframe computers and high-end Power Systems servers. The facility's features include a closed-loop system that circulates chilled water throughout the facility for air conditioning, systems cooling and other functions. The constantly circulating water also uses localized system cooling through IBM's unique "Cool Blue" Rear Door Heat eXchangers. The first products for customers are expected to roll off the assembly line later this year.
